It's hard adjusting to real life after having a baby. Your normal schedule gets messed up because of all the late night feedings and being at your little ones beck and call all day so that personal things like showers, cutting ones nails and shaving of any kind take a back seat to just being able to sit and stare off into space if you find yourself with an extra minute or two. Working out, shopping, reading a book or blog or anything in print just seem like life's simple pleasures that are nowhere in your near future. Fun things that you can remember vaguely doing in the past but now have no idea how to even begin to now fit them into your everyday life.
The key is to start slowly. Adding one item back into your life at a time.
Daily Shower - Check
Brush Teeth by 10am - Check
Wear Clean Clothes - Check, for the most part
Waking up at a decent hour - ........
This is my next task to get a handle on, waking up and getting my lazy and sore bones out of bed at a normal adult hour, say somewhere between 6 and 7. So far, I am batting 2 for 2 but it has been a struggle. No lie, I just want to sleep in while my hubby gets up with Ellie to dress and feed her. Is that so bad? But I can't do this lazy thing forever, so this week I will overcome my need for sleep, put on my big girl panties, drink more then a couple cups of coffee and join the rest of the world. That is until Saturday, I am totally sleeping in on Saturday. And maybe even Sunday.
This puree is a perfect combination of Summer and Fall. Sweet juicy Summer peaches roasted down to an almost carmel like goodness mixed with rooted down earthy Fall carrots. Sprinkled with some bold chili powered to tease your babies test buds, letting them get just a hint of all the good things in store for them this Fall.
